An item of news not expected to be well-reported in some circles:
From Haaretz Tuesday Feb 21 2017, page 7.

Palestinians in first-ever labor pact

. . . the 75 employees of a garage in the Mishor Adumim industrial zone signed a collective labor agreement with Israeli management last week.

. . . the first of its type marks a major advance for the estimated 50,000 Palestinians who work in Area C of the West Bank.

. . . Management agreed, starting in January 2014 (I think this is a typo for 2017 - JD) to honor the minimum wage laws, pay vacation, travel and sick pay, contribute to employee pension-fund contributions and provide convalescence pay, as required by law.

. . . (but not to guaranteed) annual wage increases and formal pay grades.
